Best Breakfast – October

Spout Café

By Ravenous Renee


It’s the beginning of spring and the Ripponlea shopping strip is buzzing with locals trying to score themselves a spot in the glimmering rays, which beckons tucking into good food with good company. I’ve just wandered by Spout café, and something tells me, this is where I’m meant to be.

Checking out the menu and being impressed by their healthful breakfast, brunch and lunch options (with a middle-eastern twist), I decided to try and squeeze myself into the mayhem of this very popular little sanctuary. And a sanctuary it is; wooden furnishings and bottled ferns garnish tables and make ornamental statement pieces; and plenty of natural light streams through the open-air shop face, making this place a welcoming haven from the moment you walk in.

Allured by the charming presence; fine smell of delicious cooking (emanating from the open-air back kitchen), and the comforting sound of the coffee grinder in full swing – I understood why this place continues to get such a good wrap. My egg white omelette ($20) was a tasteful wrap in itself.

My brekkie looking more than palatable, but some may argue plain to the eye, and somewhat resembling that of a healthy take on a Mexican burrito (with a side of two pieces of rye poppy seed and grain bread), I soon learnt that this dish was no easy or boring feat. To the bacon and egg social “glutton-ites” out there, this may not be your first pick of the usual brekky or brunch picks, but rest assured my “clean eating” aficionados – this dish is my, and your new, best, friend.

Perfect pre, or post gym fuel, this tasteful masterpiece ticks all the healthy heart and hip friendly boxes. Soul-satisfying and tastebud tantalising – warm delectable pieces of wood roasted salmon will melt in your mouth alongside smothering’s of lavish avo-mash, tainted with delicate amounts of kasoundi (middle-eastern tomato relish), alongside complimenting bitey goodness of quality Meredith’s goats cheese – need I say anymore? Well actually, the Prana Chai ($4.50) that I had to accompany my delicious feed was pretty damn good too.
